Re: axle width

I'm looking for the same info. I want to swap the front axle from a military CUCV into my '53 Chevy 2wd. Anybody done anything like this before? I think my current axle, backing plate to backing plate, is somewhere around 53 inches. I figured rearrange the mounts for the leaf springs, order some custom leaf springs, and be in business. Any comments?

K20Beater, just rearrange the spring mounts on the frame so you can run the ultra common 73-87 4x4 springs.
